I have this book on my wishlist on amazon!!! I love her books!
It’s funny that scrapbooking is our obsession and thankfully since I can’t scrapbook in bed (yes, I’ve tried) I can instead read about scrapbooking!!!

Yes, I put 20 numbers into Random.org and he (or she?) picked number 1.

Congratulations Teri! I hope you enjoy the book.

Thank you to author Laura Childs for providing a free copy of her book for this giveaway. If you’d like to buy the book, you can find it HERE.

As for the scrappy prize – first of all, thank you SO much for all the kind and helpful and constructive comments about Scrapbook Obsession Blog. I really, truly appreciate your input and will take all of your suggestions to heart. I want this to be a place YOU feel at home, and where YOU want to read and comment and hang out. So THANK YOU.

The winner of the scrappy prize is . . . Nadine!!

I have never read a scrapbooking novel, but I love mysteries, so Laura’s book would address my three addictions – reading, preserving memories while being creative, and enjoying a whodunit!

And now on to your other questions . . .
1. I love the redesign of the blog. As other readers have shared, the type size is superb. I don’t mind the white at all. It reminds me of a just painted white picket fence! Pops of color would be nice at times, but the white color to me is very clean and calming.
2. I just started reading your blog in January of 2014, and off the top of my head, I don’t know where I discovered you! I love all you do, but I especially appreciate your posts about HSN scrapbooking shows. I used to get reminders from HSN but they haven’t been coming through lately. I usually buy a few items but mostly enjoy listening and watching all things scrappy. I tell my husband and daughters it is my time to relax and have fun!
3. As another reader said, it would be neat to see some tutorials or project sheets on the blog. However, there is a ton of that type of scrapbooking stuff on the web and what you bring to the table is your unique sense of humor and information on so many other aspects of the industry. I would be interested in your recommendations on where we can find cool projects, etc. I am a “mini album junkie” and any new takes on them would be fun to read as well.

Thanks for asking for our opinions and ideas!

It was so hard to choose from all the great comments – thank you ALL again.

Teri and Nadine, please send me your mailing address and I’ll get your prizes out soon! Also, Nadine if you could please send me a little idea of your scrapbooking tastes so I can send you a prize you’ll like (e.g., family, boys, travel, blues and greens, Christmas, Project Life, etc.) Thanks! scrapbookobsession(at)gmail(dot)com

Happy Friday and here’s to a scrappy weekend!

Scrapbook Novel: Who Wants to Win a Copy?!?

I’ve been lucky enough to again receive a copy of a new scrapbooking novel to give away! I know how much you love these :)

This time, it’s Gossamer Ghost (A Scrapbooking Mystery) by LAURA CHILDS.

{You can see other posts I’ve done about her books HERE, including a post where YOU got to ask questions of Laura and she answered them for you!}.

The prize is in hardcover because the book just came out in October 2014. All you do to enter is click on Comments under the title to this post and leave a Comment :)

The comment can be about anything but if you’re speechless today, here are some ideas:

– What do you love about scrapbooking novels?
– How many scrapbooking novels have you read? Have a favorite?
– How do you like the way my blog re-design is going (be honest!). Is the “all white” too hard on the eyes? Other suggestions or comments?
– How long have you been a Scrapbook Obsession reader?
– What types of things would you like to read about here that I don’t cover (or cover enough?)

Because I’m so curious about those last 3 questions, I’ll send out a lil’ scrappy prize to someone who thoughtfully answers one (or more) of those – and you’re still eligible for the book, too.

DEADLINE: Sunday, November 30, 2014 at midnight PST
*Open to mailing addresses in the US only

Winners will be announced the following week. Please make sure when leaving a comment that it includes a way to reach you if you win – a link to your blog, your e-mail, etc. Book winner will be selected by random draw. I will hand-pick the scrappy prize winner.

PS: If you’re too anxious to wait for the giveaway (or would prefer a Kindle version instead of a hard copy), the book is available NOW for sale RIGHT HERE. If you’d like to check out other Scrapbooking Mysteries by Laura Childs, you can find them all HERE.
